Discovered this free but very good Benchmark software – Catzilla – Click here for the download website.
Here are my various PC results.
A17 laptop – GTX860M [4 years old]
PC with 2xGTX560Ti [recent build]
PC with GTX1080 8G + GTX970 4G [ 5 year old PC , i7 2600K at 3.4Ghz 32Gb ram with new Nvidia cards]
I’ve used several benchmark software to compare computer hardware especially nvidia GPU cards used for cuda programming. One good free benchmark software is Maxon CineBench , another is Unigine Haven
Here are surprising results generated from the new Blender Benchmark under its Blender Open data website program.
Quick summary/my findings:
- less render time running Linux [LinumMint] than under Windows 10 [all things turned off], same hardware
- SSD’s help
Linux run: Workstation with GTX1080 8Gb, GTX970 4Gb, 32Gb RAM, Quad core Intel processor. No SSD
Same hardware as above but run under Windows 10
Ran on same hardware, only using the GTX1080 8Gb , under Linuxmint – impressive resuly showing in my view and from cuda/nvidia research l did that the 4Gb of the 2nd graphics card limits the performance.
Home PC #2 Results below, newer PC, no SSD, 2 x GTX560Ti
Below results from Alienware 17 [4 years old] with Samsung Evo 500Gb SSD, GTX860M
Happy New Year 2018!
Benchmark results from my primary laptop/workstation.
Notes, screenshots and results using, installing, testing Nvidia Cuda on Linuxmint 18.1
“CUDA is a parallel computing platform and programming model invented by NVIDIA. It enables dramatic increases in computing performance by harnessing the power of the graphics processing unit (GPU).“

Tests done on my custom built Workstation PC as well as Alienware 17 laptop – all GPU specs below.
Quick comparisons [not the focus of this post] :):
- Puget systems laptop, with a GTX 980M 8Gb – 91 billion int./sec, 1819 Gflops
- My Alienware 17 with a GTX 860M 2Gb – 43.3 b.i.p.s, 866 Gflops
- My workstation with a GTX 970 4Gb -> 146 b.i.p.s, 2919 GFlops.
Screenshots in no particular order.

Ran this benchmark blend which you can get from this link.
Below is my result, using:
LinuxMint 17 OS
Linux 3.13.0-24-generic, Intel i7-2600k 3.4Ghz 8Core 32Gb 2 x GTX560Ti [GPU not used]
Render time: 1:47:47:14 Memory 6986.53Mb Peak Memory 7082.46Mb

Have this video card on my main CAD workstation (Q8200 2.33Ghz Quad-core 8Gb RAM Vista 64bit).
Updated the video driver to a nvidia 182.08 windows Vista 64 release after some windows vista problems with the 182.20 release. Seems to be working great.
Ran POV-RAY 3.6.1 Benchmark version 1.02
Render averaged 103.58 PPS over 147456 pixels, in a total time of 1423.63 seconds.
